What is a strategy...or what is the strategy of the people above when we are talking about trad climbing?

Strategy, in trad, means; a plan of action designed to achieve an overall aim.

first you most have an objective, an intention to do a route. Gave me a plane ticket, and i will fly to "Les drus" in France because I began to climb with a story on that mountain. It is just 5.7, but for me...it is valuable.

second, it is a plan of action. You want to do the route in four or two pitches? where do you want to built your anchor (when there is no bolt....more fun), which grade, etc.

The answer of all those questions, and some more, make a plan and after you have your plan, you can do it in real life. and make it or fail.

But, as a beginner, what is more fun? to learn how to make a strategy to climb a route, which is the same as a strategy to find a great job, or to always do what dgoguen, sneoh, kenreville and the other wrote?   

Man, you are really overthinking. I mean, seriously.
And I really don't get what the Nose and les Drus are bringing to the point, if not mere (and pretty cheap) name-dropping effect.

LL- in spite of what you seem to think, not everyone freaks out when ever there may be a runout...are you always frightened when climbing ? or constantly thinking about ledge falls ?

Deal with it and move on

And where are all these death climbs ?

In sport, the bolt are generally place at regular space. It is a strategy that we saw more often today. If they climb a run out, they want a bolt...and if they are some things that look like a good placement, they will used it even if it is not good. But what how can we learn to make a strategy?

You really have no idea what you're talking about, do you?

Now you've done it. LL's just getting warmed up. Wait till he starts with the quoting of himself. Which he does regularly.

Luke, by "ANYTHING" I meant ANY ROUTE, not any pro in particular.  Sorry if you were confused by the language.
I have said my piece.  Al gave me "+++" so I am done with this.  Please carry on as you like.  Feel free to express your opinions.
